Triple-A: Las Vegas 51s (49-54)


Chris Flexen had a solid start in Vegas last night, giving up single runs in the first and third, but shutting down the Sounds thereafter. Vegas tied it in the third on a Colton Plaia solo home run and a Zach Borenstein RBI triple. In very non-PCL fashion, the game remained scoreless thereafter until the ninth, when it looked as if Bobby Wahl’s second Vegas appearance might end in a loss after he allowed a leadoff walk to come around to score. However, Kevin Kaczmarski legged out an infield single with two outs and the bases loaded in the ninth to get the tying run across, setting the stage for Zach Borenstein to play the hero with a three-run walk-off home run in the bottom of the tenth.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (48-54)


Harol Gonzalez continues to struggle in Binghamton, losing his third straight start after surrendering six runs over six innings, leaving him with an 11.12 ERA in three AA starts. The Ponies fought back from an early deficit in this one, scoring one in the fifth and two in the sixth to tie the game. Gonzalez came out for the seventh to walk the leadoff hitter before yielding to Matt Blackham in an inning that saw Bowie plate five to put the game away. Speaking of struggling in an intro to the upper minors, Andres Gimenez went 0-5 to make it 0-11 so far, as well as committing two throwing errors.

ROSTER ALERT: Binghamton Rumble Ponies placed C Jose Garcia on the 7-day disabled list.

ROSTER ALERT: Binghamton Rumble Ponies activated RHP Harol Gonzalez from the temporarily inactive list.

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (27-40/12-19)


It was a 1-1 game heading into the top of the sixth when David Peterson ran into some trouble. Former top pick Mickey Moniak led off with a single, and then with one out Jose Pujols doubled on a ball Wuilmer Becerra injured diving for, bringing Blake Tiberi into the game at second as Dale Burdick moved to the outfield. Peterson almost wriggled his way out of it, getting a strike out and then a ground ball that found Tiberi, who booted it, allowing two unearned runs to score. Clearwater tacked on one more in the seventh—Lucie tried to answer right back, plating two in the bottom of the frame to cut the deficit to one, but would get no closer.

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (34-33/14-18)


Tony Dibrill had another impressive start, going six innings without allowing an earned run while walking only one (giving him only two over his last 19 innings). The Braves plated their first two off of Dibrill in the fourth on an error by Jose Brizuela. The Colaflies chipped away, adding an unearned run of their own in the sixth before tying it in the eighth on a Giovanny Alfonzo RBI double. Alfonzo advanced to third on a wild pitch, but Oliver Pascual struck out to end the inning, and Darwin Ramos’s second inning of relief went much, much worse than his first, as the Braves exploded for five to take the lead.

Short Season: Brooklyn Cyclones (20-18)


The Scrappers scraped out single runs in the first and the second of of a struggling Kevin Smith to grab an early 2-0 lead. The Cyclones got their run in the top of the third on a Jose Miguel Medina double followed by a Brian Sharp RBI single. Adam Hill, Tylor Megill, and Trent Johnson were impressive over the final six innings, allowing only four baserunners while striking out seven to keep the Cyclones in the game, but they couldn’t push the tying run across.

Rookie-Advanced: Kingsport Mets (17-16)


It was a back and forth affair, but Kingsport couldn’t go far enough forth in the bottom of the tenth, answering Danville’s two runs with only one. Gavin Garay’s two-out double in the tenth plated Shervyen Newton, but Domingo Martinez had to stop at third, and Ranfy Adon flew out to left fielder Carlos Baerga Jr.(!) to leave the tying and winning runs in scoring position. Luis Santana continues to impress in Kingsport, with a double and two walks leaving him with a .359/.469/.470 slash line so far this year.

Rookie: GCL Mets (18-14)


The GCL Mets almost but not quite squandered a 9-1 lead, as they exploded for three in the first and six in the second. Ronny Mauricio drove in three over those first two innings with a two-run bomb in the top of the first and an RBI double in the second. The GCL Nats exploded for 7 in the bottom of the third to cut it to 9-8, but would never poke ahead. The Mets scored single runs in the fifth and seventh, and those insurance runs proved essential when the Nats scored two in the eighth.
